you need to buy a test specific voucher, which you can get from any prometric center and you have to give the test with in the validity period of the voucher

As Swapnil said, the key is to get a voucher from Sun. Then, with that voucher, you can go to one of the testing centers (2test? prometric?) and schedule the exam.

The vouchers are country specific, so make sure you get one for your specific region.

Get a list of the testing centres from the Prometic website ( Apart from buying the vouchers online, you can also call and check with the testing centers. Many of the testing centres sell exam vouchers also. Important: Check the validity date of these vouchers.

liam quinlan:The exam is not offered at prometric. You need to login to Pearson VUE. Below are the instructions I got from Oracle website and it should work. This is how I registered it few weeks back.


Go to
Select Schedule a Test.
Select Proctored.
Sign In.
Select the checkbox next to the exam you'd like to take.
Select language and click Next.
Locate a testing center near you by defining the search criteria.
Select a testing center near you and click Next.
Select a date and an available appointment time and click Select Appointment.
Click Next.
Review your appointment details to be sure that they are correct.
If you have a discount voucher number, you will enter it at the bottom of this page in the Voucher Number field and select Apply Voucher. Your balance will reflect the discount.
On the next screen you will need to enter payment information to cover the remaining balance. The exam fee is payable to Pearson VUE by any major credit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Switch Cards) at the time of registration.
On the next screen, you will review your order and confirm. If all information is correct, select Confirm Order. You will only be allowed to confirm your order after selecting the checkbox beside "I have read and agree to the check-in and reschedule/cancellation policies." Be sure to familiarize yourself with these policies. Exceptions will not apply.
The next page will present your exam receipt. If you need an exam receipt for your records or for reimbursement, PRINT THIS PAGE. This is your exam receipt.
You will receive a confirmation email. This confirmation email can also be used as a receipt for reimbursement purposes

Hope this will help.
